You can ask TX CS to recalculate your obligation going forward, based on an order not transmitted timely and the resulting overpayment. They should communicate with NJ and give you credit for the overpayment.
I use the word "should" because this almost never happens. You will be ignored until you give up. The only real way to get your money is ask your ex to pay you back first, and then if she refuses, file a motion in NJ family court to have the court recalculate your support obligation and order her to reimburse you for the over payments.
Obviously, for $200, it's hardly worth the hassle.
